    7.1 vs 7.5.3 on a Color Classic

    7.1 is definitely the way to go on these with the original 030 motherboard. I'm lucky that I have a "Mystic" one, that's on 7.5.5 and that's spritly to say the least! Personally I follow these rules from experience but there's no true right or wrong: 68k and 020: System 6.0.8 16MHz - 25MHz 030: System 7.1(.1) 32MHz - 40MHz 030: System 7.5.5 040: System 7.5.5, 7.6.1 or 8.1 (OS 8 for 33MHz and above) 601 PPC: 7.6.1 or 8.1 603 PPC: 8.6 to 9.2.2 G3: 9.2.2 to early OSX.

    Horizontal lines on PowerBook 180c

    Isn't this a passive matrix display? I'm pretty sure this is normal, albeit probably made worse by leaky caps. Replacing them will likely reduce it but it's not likely to eliminate it due to the nature of them kind of display's.
  3. Pretty sure I got a disk image of it on my Emu. Here: http://macintoshgarden.org/games/dark-castle-color I said "Colour Versions", this may be the only one on colour. I can't remember off the top of my head.

    Nice I wondered who won that eBay auction. Keep us updated.

    Best games/apps to showcase B&W mac?

    IIci is 25Mhz with cache (usually). Classic II is 16MHz and is crippled by other factors too. That said, being as it's only rendering white and black, it probably wouldn't be too bad on it.

    Civilization and Vette! They're the only two I can think of that nobody else mentioned. Though Civ may be slow on 68K. . . Every other suggestion is sound. Personally I find the "Quest" games very poorly optimized on the Mac, barely playable but give it a go none-the-less. Wasn't Syndicate B&W too? That would probably be a slideshow on 68K though (if it works at all).

    Help identifying NuBus RAM card. (RAM Disk?)

    Thanks for that. The only Mac OS' that I'm aware of that has Quickdraw acceleration drivers is 8.1 onwards. Was there earlier OEM OS discs that had them? I'm thinking of using this in my IIvx see if it to speeds that up a little.

    Help identifying NuBus RAM card. (RAM Disk?)

    Oh wow really? That's pretty cool, I seriously didn't think it did that. My apologies for dismissing your first post. The IIci already has a 24-bit Radius card in it so I doubt there is any point to having this in there I suppose? Wouldn't keeping this card just bottleneck the system? I assume it would be better off in a system that is using on-board video.

    Help identifying NuBus RAM card. (RAM Disk?)

    Pretty sure it has no video capabilities, hell it doesn't even have an output on the backplate! No, it does look similar to alot of the NuBus video accelerators but it is definitely only a RAM hardware thing. I'm sure I remember the diskette having a very plain looking label on it. Had typewriter style text on it. Nothing fancy. Makes me wonder if this was some kind of small / limited production thing.

    Bolles finds

    Yeah I agree, leave it alone. Even if it was as simple as a CPU swap, these things are hen's teeth, especially the NuBus varients. I'm lucky I have a 100MHz PDS one for my Q650 but frankly, after trying that and a stock 6100, there's not a huge difference. Probably partly thanks to the 6100 having a little more cache. I am stararting to wonder if I should pull the heatsink off mine and replace the paste though. It kicks out some crazy heat!. Especially when Quaking!

  12. Hi again. Another bit of hardware I'm struggling to find any info on, let alone software. I got this NuBus RAM Disk Card (I think?). There's no markings or make of any kind on the card itself. Just lots of off-the-shelf looking IC's and some stickers with manufacturing numbers on them. It came with a IIci I bought a few years back and although I'm sure I remember it having a diskette, it's long since disappeared. I'm sure it was some kind of RAM storage, it had an icon on the desktop where you dragged and dropped stuff onto it. I think it's 4MB in it's current form. I really hope I can still get some software for this, as I'm worried it might just be too obscure to have been backed-up digitally. Any help would be much appreciated!
  13. The only way I can think of repairing it is perhaps getting a jumper wire from each termination. However, I have no idea if opening/closing it is going to cause stress on the individual wires that will need to be soldered to each point.
  14. Lemmings - You mentioned this, I agree it's a must-have. Vette! - Way ahead of its time. Though colour version I've had issues with some Mac's (later ones especially). Oregon Trail - should go without saying! SimCity -. TBH, most earlier Maxis stuff will be great on the si. Wolfenstein 3D - Though you will probably have to run this in postage-stamp mode). Monkey Island - 2 might be a bit choppy. Dark Castle - Colour versions. Leisure Suit Larry 1 - Maybe 5 too though might be a little choppy. PGA Tour - Really fun golf game, a very good (Amiga?) port. Super Maze Wars (network it with your SE/30 and find a friend to play with for the best experience) Space Quest III - Really fun, if a bit unforgiving. Not a well optimized port though. Prince of Persia - A bit clunky on control but as mentioned, it's a good one to look out for. Il add more if I think of anything! My advice, get yourself a FloppyEmu and you can get whatever floppy games you 2ith with 100% reliability (mostly). Not cheap, but you won't regret it.

    Mac SE... with hard drive, network card???

    That's a nice set-up. Test the floppy drives with some HD disks that are known working. Be sure to use disks you don't care about because they might get damaged if there are issues with the drives. Same goes for using unknown condition disks as the reverse could happen!
